neutral gray plastic laminate for viewing prints
« on: August 19, 2013, 11:21:10 PM »

i'm getting a new work surface for my digital light room and would like it to be as close to neutral gray as possible - any specific recommendations for plastic laminate - "formica"

One of the Munsell neutral greys depending on the ambient light + reflection factor, for example the Munsell N6.5. And then find the corresponding RAL number. Then find a manufacturer of melamine lamination sheets with that RAL number in the catalog. The usual color description in that market.

WikiAnswers What are the ral code for munsell color n6.5? RAL No. 7037. What are the ral code for munsell n7? ral 7035.  Munsell N8 (Lab: 80/0/0) ~ RAL 7047 (Lab: 81/0/0).
